Every donation builds job skills. The average donation creates nearly three hours of job training through Goodwill NCW mission programs to empower individuals to reach their fullest potential.

Meet Emma

Emma participated in Goodwill NCW’s School-to-Work program at the Lake Hallie Goodwill store. It was her first job experience, and she had to overcome being very shy. Her goals were to gain confidence and develop a good work ethic to take her into adulthood.

The program helped Emma achieve her goals. After graduating from high school, Emma worked several jobs outside of Goodwill NCW. The skills and confidence she gained from her experience at Goodwill NCW allowed her to excel at those jobs, and she became a leader at several retailers.

When she moved back to the Chippewa Valley in 2023, she knew that a job with Goodwill NCW would be the perfect fit for her. She has recently elevated to a Shift Leader and then to a Customer Experience Team Leader.

“Her path is limitless, and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for her,” Emma’s store leader said.

Meet Bryana

Bryana has struggled with her communication skills. With support from the team at the La Crosse Goodwill store, Bryana became a cashier and has gained the skills needed to communicate with customers and fellow team members.

The team at Goodwill NCW has also supported Bryana in pursuing her career goals. She got help to enroll in a higher education program in her field of interest, Interior Design.

Bryana is doing well in her role and uses her creativity to design store displays when she is not cashiering. She is also excelling in her schooling and has a goal of obtaining her bachelor’s degree. Her leaders say she has, “come out of her shell.”
